Their actual "Washi Tape" challenge inspired me to make my own washi tape - using Stampotique stamps. And as Halloween is near and I had no choice anyway (*lol), I used the gorgeous owl stamp to create two washi tape pieces to be able to enter their challenge once again. (Thank you, Stampotique DT, you really get my mojo flowing!).
Here are the ingredients I used for my washi tape recipe:
And it was so much fun!I used some sandwich paper and glued some double-sided
For the background of my tag I used some heavy black card and ran it through my Sizzix using an awesome "grunge stripes" embossing folder I bought on sale recently.
I partially heat embossed the raised areas with opaque white embossing enamel.
The top of the tag was given a coat of white acrylic colours first, then a coat of DecoArt Weathered Wood Crackle Medium and later a coat of black acrylic colour.
Then I covered some chipboard letters with light grey colour first, then again some Weathered Wood and some deep red for a finish.
I embellished the tag with my washi tape elements and glued the letters on top. Done!
I hope you like it and have a lot of fun too with creating your Halloween tags or some selfmade washi tape!
Hugs and happy crafting,

edit: my 10 year old son, who (obviously) has a good view for details and composition, said that the lower part of the tag looked a bit "empty" - and he was absolutely right! So I added a paper rosette for further embellishment.
This is how it looked before I followed his advice:
